The president of the Class of '46 has led our meetings
for the last three years, and has been with us since the
ninth grade when he came to Plymouth from Carver. He
is a fellow of a few words but has won himself recognition
as left end on the football team, and is an active member
of the Student Activities Society. Everybody likes "Ken-
ny," but his classmates will long remember him for his
original sneeze. He plans to enter Northeastern, and we
know he will be the credit to the college that he has been to Plymouth High.
In every class there are some who seem to enjoy the
business of living, and Henry, our vice-president, is one
of those people. He has served as homeroom president
both in his sophomore and junior years. He is an active
member of the Student Activities Society, and has par-
ticipated in sports as guard on the football squad. Henry
hopes to be a dentist. If he opens an office in Plymouth,
he may be in a position to afford us both pleasure and
pain in the days to come.
Pauline has quietly done much to win our admiration
and affection. In her sophomore and senior years she
served as homeroom secretary, and since her junior year
she has acted as class secretary. Apparently the Class of
'46 likes a good-looking blonde with blue eyes and a win-
ning smile to record the minutes of its meetings. Pauline
has been a stamp collector and rendered service on dance
committees. She wishes to become a medical secretary.
"Clarky," the class treasurer, is a member of the
basketball team and has scored many a point for the
school. Although unpretentious and studious, during his
three years in high school he has always been willing to
cooperate on dance committees. Norman also has been
in assembly programs, and we well remember his last
appearance as the Reverend Clark at Thanksgiving.
Norman's scholastic record has been such that he is a
member of the Honor Group. The service will gain another Plymouth boy
after graduation since he intends to enter the Navy.
V jo record kern of tkinas tkeu ue done;
l/l/e oniu seek to have some fvrn.
He's the kind of craftsman
With whom we can't com-
As he constructs distinctive
At his shop on Alden Street.
Gertie sings her little songs
Now low, now sweet, now
At basketball or hockey
She's always on the spot.
In a pleasant way
She performs with diligence
The duties of the day.
We obtained proof positive
Of his vocal power —
He really barked and bel-
In the Theatre Hour.
Her classroom teachers, we
Must entertain some doubt:
Is she really able
To life her voice and shout?
For most distinguished serv-
To her school and class
We pronounce a benison
Upon this able lass.
Genevieve, sweet Genevieve,
Off to Boston she blithely
On week-end excursions to
The city's best movies and
Applause and hosannas
To a football captain who
Hated to stop playing
Though the game was
If you'd have no record
Of the sillier things you do,
Just be sure his camera's
Isn't trained on you.
The range of her activities
Knocks us for a loop:
She played the part of half
a cow —
Then made the Honor
He departed from our ranks
Before his graduation;
The U. S. Navy will provide
His higher education.
With Caesar, Cicero, Vergil
She skillfully contends,
But her spirit is not mar-
They are the best of friends.
For all we know to the con-
His cakes and pies are deli-
That his milkshakes are the
Is no tale fictitious.
She knows that smiles pay
More liberal than frowns,
That they can smooth the
O'er life's ups and downs.
She never gets mired
In morasses of gloom —
In the sunlight of smiles
Her good nature blooms.
Music on her lips,
Rhythm in her feet,
Prove a combination
With which we can't com-
She flits here, she darts
Like a hummingbird;
You hope to catch her in
How utterly absurd !
Always willing to assist
In whatever way she's able,
"Most cooperative and cour-
For Cathy that's our label.
Lest effort should go unre-
We feel that all should know
She worked long hours in
our library —
A debt to her we owe.
Santos Dumont is the man
Admired by Harold Bum-
If his idol we deride
He will raise a rumpus.
Foolish it is to act in haste
And then at leisure rue it;
Deliberately she makes a
And then proceeds to pur-
No man can have every-
It may be that he had his
For he served as basketball
And as a football player.
A farmer once he thought
But he's had a change of
As an engineer in this vale
He'll seek to do his part.
Shirley, Shirley you look
No need now to preen
Before your locker mirror;
It's really 8:14.
With interests so numerous
And responsibilities myriad
She doubtless feels she must
In second study period.
Those who sit in her home
Have observed with some
That they must wait for the
Till she has had her say.
English and history silence
To his way of thinking
they're rather grim:
With physics and math he'll
cast his fate,
On tangents and laws ex-
We haven't had the training
To interpret what it means:
He has divergent interests —
Music and machines.
Snowdrop and pussywillow,
Robin's blithe call — he
Not that he's a naturalist—
But he just loves baseball.
Tempus fugit —
But does she care?
It's twelve past eight
When she's in her chair.
Chatter, chatter, chatter —
Garrulous is this lass:
She dispenses all the news
In the corridor after class.
Jackie's work is never done.
She toils from morn to set
Though Caesar and Cicero
have been completed,
She cannot rest till Vergil's
We know that tin does not
The properties of elastic —
But the number of passen-
gers he transports
Is utterly fantastic.
She has a magic formula
For combining work and
Which has stood her in
On life's Rocky way.
Life is earnest, life is real,
No time for vapid chatter —
In this workaday world of
It's deeds — not words — that
The sixty-four dollar ques-
We shall now propound:
Will she or won't she turn
on the charm?
It depends on who's around.
We have heard some tall
And told some in our time —
But the one about him and
a lady's nose
Is our idea of prime.
She's not the one who will
Where angels fear to tread:
Carefully she looks about —
Then takes a step ahead.
Of little brother's escapades
She tells at our behest:
She keeps us all in stitches
And fills our days with zest.
For the ills of the world
There's no panacea:
But for our duller moments
His name spells good cheer.
We thought he would bs
From the graduation dance,
But on the draft expiring
He thought he'd take a
It may seem to some
Most picayune —
But what he wants most
Is the middle of June.
Through the pre - com-
He lives with the calm as-
That schooldays won't last
All he needs now is endur-
Many endless hours she
Under Mrs. Brown's direc-
That her contributions to us
Might approach perfection.
Upon Annapolis he cast
A speculative eye:
Wherever he matriculates
His record will be high.
An appendix operation
Anyone can bear;
It was the timing of it
That made him tear his
He's never been known
To grumble and groan
At ills that have whacked us
And tasks that have cracked
Sundaes and sodas
Most girls would abjure
If a trim figure like hers
'T would ensure.
In the superintendent's of-
Or on the hockey field
For honest application
To no one she need yield.
She's busy as an office girl
Both while in school and
Her thoughts of Brooklyn
Locked behind barriers
He grabs his good shillelagh
And rushes in with glee
If, perchance, our poor idea
With his does not agree.
He's intimated more than
That school brings no ela-
We thought just being with
Would be some compensa-
She takes pride in achieve-
But she's free from conceit —
One of the most pleasant
It's been our luck to meet.
Hunting comes first
In this man's life.
For Rocky's not happy
Without gun and knife.
Here is a subject
On which we'd throw light:
He possesses a bark
Much worse than his bite.
Herbie has a little Ford,
Its paint is black as pitch—
And it alone prevents him
From being very rich.
As typist for the yearbook
She worked with great dis-
Faithfully and busily
To finish each new batch.
On the era of the Civil War
Whenever he gets the nod,
He recites with such profi-
His classmates are over-
The finest scarecrow we've
But no offense, you know —
For that's the part that
In the Garden Gaieties
The idea surely isn't one
That we would here dis-
She thinks of her diploma
As prerequisite to marriage.
You must have observed
Who is bandbox neat
From the top of her head
To the soles of her feet.
She promotes the general
More than we may have
If teachers didn't get their
Their tempers might be
To school she brings a pic-
And displays it with pride
Who's the object of her af-
It's her sister's baby boy.
The Honor Roll is this boy's
And he makes it with little
But let the teacher leave
And his serious air goes, too.
"Swampy" pulls his lobster
During the summer season:
For not to fish in Ellisville
Would be considered
He has an air of assurance,
But we would not berate it —
For he also has the record
To substantiate it.
When we ask of her a favor,
She will readily reply
That, if it lies within her
Our wish she'll not deny.
When things go right
Is replaced by a frown
When things look less
Henry is a studious lad,
But, if excitement's to be
If merriment is in the air,
He'll contribute his just
Life won't be so difficult
At work or play or in school
If we accept her formula
And live by the Golden Rule.
As sure as we are of taxes
We are sure of this:
Enzo in glasses and derby
Is a sight no one should
She has evinced a preference
For the opposite sex —
We choose our words most
For her we would not vex.
Girl rushes to locker.
We hope she's not late,
For there she will meet him
At ten minutes past eight.
In school she's as quiet
As quiet can be —
But when on the dance floor
She's something to see.
A doodler par excellence
With pencil, chalk, or pen:
Her sketches are diverting,
A true artist is Miss N.
It is sometimes advantage-
To be taller than the rest,
For, though you sometimes
bump your head,
The view up there is best.
A happy face, a flashing
And personality plus —
She warms the cockles of
The hours she spends with
She isn't always
Sweetness and light —
She lets us know it
When things don't go right.
Where is the fire?
Why the mad speed?
She's off to the Cordage —
She pays us no heed.
She has a face and figure
Well above the norm:
The Class of '46 presents
Its anatomical bomb.
He takes Home Ec, so doubt-
A meal's not cooked in the
But could he possibly pre-
Ab ovo usque ad mala.
Let's have a place for every-
And everything in its place:
Sloppiness, it seems to him,
Verges on disgrace.
Shortages reared their ugly
There were deadlines to be
So numerous were her head-
That she's not recovered
From the tip of his tongue
Pour forth diatribes:
But no harm is meant
By his maddening jibes.
Let us hear it wail and cry:
Give a little — and you can
Drown out Besegai.
No matter what the ques-
Alan's hand is first to rise —
And in matters scientific
Mr. Roberts takes the prize.
Rosie is a diminutive miss
With a wide and friendly
Her equilibrium she main-
When people tease and rile.
Some seniors are impatient
With the smaller fry:
But she is sympathetic to
Their eternal how and why.
Aurora was discussed
In our poet's forum:
We found her the epitome
Of feminine decorum.
It may be knowledge that
But his method we deplore:
Of these whispered conver-
We will have no more.
Although she may seem reti-
When you know her well,
About a certain Navy lad
She will proudly tell.
To a man in the Navy
She's plighted her troth:
The finest of voyages
Is our wish for both.
Somewhat on the quiet side
We feel satisfied
Until, "You just don't know
Laughing friends deride.
That there is no write-up of
In the year book is high
It's just that it must go to
Before the baseball season.
It may be that
No blot on his record
Can we detect.
When, his ambition realized,
He's admitted to the bar,
We'll all insist we always
That Charlie would go far.
We caftnot ftrage by stature
The work^tnat 'o^e can (do:
For Evie's half the ^size* of
one f j^P~^
And does enough for two.
Senior girls can praise or
He will not attend:
But one junior's mild dis-
Can his composure rend.
No need of Arthur Murray
Or lessons from Madame
Already he has the rudi-
Of the rhumba and the
Psychology in 301
Was just the class for Bob.
He'd talk with ease on any-
Prom cars to corn-on-cob.
Today she is as pleasant
As summer breeze in coun-
Tomorrow she may gusty be
As a winter hurricane.
His experience with the bul-
May have done some good:
Why teachers need wax
Is more easily understood.
To think her demure
Is highly fallacious —
Though we have been
With being mendacious.
He doesn't like routine him-
But he'll be the very one
To extol its virtues
To his high school son.
We hope for the best when
That he must have his say:
But there are topics upon
He'll expatiate all day.
She must constantly battle
We hope she has what it
To think her waistline more
Than Currier's candies and
She shows some concern
About her coiffure:
Though we approve it,
She's never quite sure.
Not on one occasion
But in instances galore
When Carolyn approaches.
She shuts their locker door.
She lives in a state
Of perpetual animation,
And to those about her,
Transmits her agitation.
As president of '46
He used no dynamite;
Yet results that he achieved
Prove his tactics right.
Long years ago she set her
For better or for worse:
She had her tonsils out —
She must become a nurse.
Had he lived in Pilgrim days
One thing he could have
Easily he could have proved
His prowess with a gun.
She walks as proudly
As any queen —
But no trace of arrogance
In her may be seen.
In years to come she'll sadly
And cast a disapproving eye
On those who to her wend
On the night before it's book
We shouldn't be so foolhardy
As to mention chickens and
Given the opportunity,
He'll talk off both our legs.
Sandwiches and apple pie,
Big grapes by the bunch —
We look at noon to see what
Will pull forth from his
For mass production
She must give thanks
So she can wear clothes
Like Louise's and Hank's.
On days when grades are
Be sure she's not forgotten
To check the mark that she
With that of S. Bolotin.
The mysteries of the Orient
He thought he would ex-
And that's just what he's
With the U. S. Marine Corps.
I think that I
May never see
A girl as capable
He left his friends behind
And donned the navy blue —
First boot camp down at
And then adventures new.
How we should miss her
If we failed to see
Upon her we at one time
Feared we'd lost our hold;
Now joyously we welcome her
Back into the fold.

PEACE MUST REST ON JUSTICE
'F THE bickering and contentions of the nations
of the world were to be stilled by the awful
voice of Ultimate Authority, and each were
required to state in one word what it is that is
wanted, the reply would be: "Justice!" And
though, in the light of the clashes in the council
of the U.N.O., that answer may appear to be dis-
honest and insincere, yet, insofar as it reflects a
fundamental human yearning and aspiration, it is
both honest and sincere.
For most men want no more than justice.
They are not looking for favors, concessions, or special treatment; they are
men in the best sense of that word, and they ask no more than that they be
judged fairly in regard to their deeds, their ambitions, their hopes, and
their fears. Fairly; let that be emphasized.
In a social structure such as ours every man at some time or other, in
one way or another, sits in judgment on his fellowmen. With such in-
formation as may be available he must make up his mind and reach
decisions affecting the work, the conditions of life, the moral and physical
well-being of his fellow citizens. That is part of the duty of all men and
women in a democracy. In addition to that, in our ordinary daily affairs
we are constantly analyzing, weighing, evaluating the acts, motives, and
character of those with whom we come in contact — and in like manner
we, too, are judged.
So it behooves us that we be fair in our judgments. The golden rule,
though old-fashioned, is not yet out of fashion, nor will it ever be. Envy,
malice, self-interest, prejudice must not enter into our decisions unless we
are prepared to accept them as dominant factors in the decisions affecting
us. If we seek justice for ourselves, we can do no less than share it with
all men, for, if it becomes one man's — or one nation's — private property,
it ceases to be justice.
The world today is disturbed, upset; and men live in fear lest war
engulf them again. And war will come in one form or other if justice be
denied; that has always been so. Therefore, it becomes the duty of each
one of us to inform ourselves as thoroughly as we can about the vexing
problems, national and international, that now are foci of conflict. India,
Java, Egypt, Russia — the list grows longer and courage flags. Price-
controls, universal military service, labor-management troubles! These
we must face; must study.
Then we must act — with justice.

Best Girl Citizen
THIS year marks the tenth time that the National Society of the
Daughters of the American Revolution has sponsored a Good Citizen
Pilgrimage among students of graduating classes in the high schools
all over the country. By vote of the Class of '46, endorsed by the faculty,
the honor and title of Best Girl Citizen have been bestowed upon Ruth
VanAmburgh, who possesses to an outstanding degree the qualities of
dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.
Since first entering senior high school Ruth has participated in many
extra-curricular activities. She served as a Junior Red Cross collector in
her sophomore year, and for the last two years has been a defense stamp
treasurer. As a member of the glee club she has taken part in several
musical programs. Greatly interested in library work, Ruth has served as
secretary of the library staff for two years. She has assisted on many
various committees for dances and school productions. In the literary field
she has displayed her interest and ability as a member of the Press Club
and the chairman of the quatrain committee for The Pilgrim.
Having been elected to the National Honor Society in her junior year,
Ruth has been active as a junior member of the Plymouth Woman's Club.
She has also been a representative to the Student Activities Society and
a member of the Honor Group.
The class feels sure that it has done well to name Ruth VanAmburgh
its Best Girl Citizen.
"Never study today what you can put off till 8:15 tomorrow.
Silence is golden — but a good recitation is platinum.
Exams come in pairs.
A good bluff covers a multitude of sins.
A homelesson is easier lost than found.
Better late than absent.
When the pencil is 'borrowed,' shut the locker door.
A lazy student gathers no A's.
A teacher may see that a student goes to class, but she cannot make him
Many glances are cast in class that the teacher knoweth not of.
So many heads, so many wits — so many answers!
Lord, what fools these sophomores be!
A senior without riches is a senior without a girl.
Almost caught was never hanged.
Charity begins in the corridor but should not end there.
Better a day of sleep than a century of strife.
Two heads are better than one.
I cannot sleep a wink — in study.
A light purse makes a heavy heart.
A book that is shut is but a block."

by Enzo Monti and Francis Verre
In an exclusive interview with the executors of the estate of the Class
of 1946, Messrs. Waggone, Waggonne, Waggonne and Carte, it was
announced that the class had made several munificent bequests. Mr. Carte,
speaking for the firm, divulged the following list of heirs and legacies:
Miss Iris Albertini was the
recipient of a very ingeni-
ous method of converting
Room 303 into a cafeteria,
thus eliminating the vio-
lent urge on the part of
her fourth - period study
pupils to reach the first
To Miss Eleanor Anifantis
was left the hope that she
may some day lead an as-
sembly when every mem-
ber knows the words of
the school song.
Mrs. Helen Bagnall was
given an alarm system of
bells, sirens, and flashing
lights to be used by her
classes whenever she strays
from the subject at hand.
Mrs. Louise Bearse received
the services of the Find-
the - Finer - Finances - First
Collection Agency to facili-
tate the locating of and
collecting from pupils who
have "Reader's Digest" ar-
Mrs. Margaret Brown was
left one ( 1 • electronic,
tamper-proof time-lock for
her door to keep her very
scarce paper and paint safe
from marauding poster
For Mrs. Viola Figueiredo
Room 106 is to be made
completely odor - proof so
that no smells may per-
meate the corridors to
tantalizingly tempt unwary
A new scoring method has
been devised for Mrs. Bea-
trice Garvin. It is hoped
that the new system will
bring satisfaction to both
boys and girls when they
play volley ball together.
Mr. Carlo Guidaboni re-
ceived a can of gold paint
to be used in applying
stripes to his pens and
pencils, so that he will not
miss too much those that
were on his sleeve.
A box of chalk of every
known color has been as-
sembled so that Miss Olive
Hey may draw the inter-
locking branches of family
trees, but still keep differ-
ent ancestries distinct from
For Miss Jeannette Jacques
there is to be purchased a
magnificent concert - shell
complete with 100 - piece
orchestra, where she may
more fittingly instruct her
students in French words
to "The Marseillaise" and
A complete album of Spike
Jones records was left to
Miss Helen Johnson in the
hope that they may relieve
the monotony of the type-
For Miss Lydia Judd there
is being devised a new
shorthand system, contain-
ing only one (1> symbol.
This should make dictation
tests easier for her to
correct and, incidentally,
simpler for pupils to take.
To Miss Elizabeth Kelly
was given a new type
blackboard that does not
show colored-chalk adver-
tisements long after they
are "washed off."
Mrs. Bernice Kelly was left
the hope that she may
some day have a bass
drummer who does not
drown out the rest of the
band with his reverberat-
Miss Katherine Lang re-
ceived the joyful satisfac-
tion of knowing that her
worst "problems of democ-
racy," her senor pupils,
have at long last departed.
For Miss Nellie Locklin was
designed a room without
window, telephone, or loud-
speaker, with a door which
can be heavily barred, as
a means of preventing her
pupils from being called
out of class.
Principal Edgar Mongan is
to be the recipient of a
student body wise enough
to know — without learn-
ing from experience — that
regulations are not made
to be broken.
One of the first 1946 cars
has been ordered for Mr.
Theodore Packard to re-
place the long, sleek, 16-
cylinder Mercedes he has
been driving of late.
•f ~ w
To Mr. John Pacheco was
left the hope that he may
some day find a pupil dar-
ing enough to play a con-
tra-bassoon in the orches-
Mr. Arthur Pyle was the
recipient of 500 Adams
history books, 35 of which
must have chains to be
fastened to the desks so
that no more books will be
Mrs. Amy Pratt was given
the hope that she makes
as good a housewife as she
aid a teacher.
Mrs. Miriam Raymond was
given a twin to enable her
to conduct all her classes
easily and still attend to
her various committees,
staffs, consultations and

Mr. Mario Romano was
left a 14-foot ruler which,
aside from being helpful in
measuring long distances,
will also be convenient in
Mr. Louis Rudolph received
the hope that his next
playing-field may be closer
than ours to the school,
thereby preventing his
charges from tiring them-
selves out just by running
from shower room to field.
Mr. Richard Smiley was
given a jar of home-made
preserves to add variety
to his shelves of pickled
cats, fish, spiders, and
Mrs. Alice Urann was pre-
sented with a rope ladder,
the more quickly to move
from auditorium to bal-
cony while directing her
"precious" Bernhardts and
To Mr. John Walker was
granted permission to dress
his football players in cere-
monial masks or whatever
souvenirs he may have
brought back from Okin-
awa, with a view to scaring
the opponents to death.
Miss Margie Wilber was
bequeathed a case of au-
thentic Roman togas to
be worn by her and her
classes so that her pupils
may enter into the spirit
of Latin translations more
To Mr. Claiborne Young
was bestowed a safari, com-
plete with jewel - bedecked
elephants and salaaming
Indian boys, to help him
with the innumerable
books, boxes and bags he
transports to and from
Mrs. Ruth Bailey's bequest
was a fleet of scooters to
speed her little messengers
on their ways to distribute
menus, notices, and sched-
Mr. Carte concluded by announcing that the will would be probated
some time in June, and that complaints, objections, and thanks would be
accepted at that time.

A BEAM OF LIGHT
The velvet darkness of the time of sleep
Starts the time of work for him who keeps
The flashing beam bright throughout the
The waves' soft rumbling fills the night
As with tumbling crests of wavering,
They crash and shatter against the age-
Outlined against the half-vague new moon,
Like a shadowy finger tipped with golden,
Stands a lighthouse, silent and forlorn.
Its flashing beam cuts the velvet softness
of the night
As Sir Galahad's sword flashed in favor
of the right
In oft-remembered days of Arthur's court.
Thus, as it searches the far reaches of the

WELCOME, DEAR GUEST
My sister often comes to spend
With us a quiet weekend,
And with her come little parcels of joy —
Her baby girl and her little boy.
At dinner we gather round the table
To eat — that is, if we are able.
Baby sister must sup early,
For she is "such a tired girlie."
Little brother will not wait
And rushes immediately to his plate.
Into his chair with a yell and a whoop,
He knocks the tonic into the soup.
When scolded, he says his feelings are
And refuses all food — all, save dessert.
And then when the darlings must go to
They trot upstairs without a peep.
Ah, yes. Without a peep — but with yells
That eventually subside in the land of
And, after a night of grueling torture,
Of anguished screams for drinks of water,
Brother hits sister at five a.m.
And everyone wakes in the resultant
My sister often comes to spend
With us a "quiet" weekend.
Under a cloudless azure sky
Daffodils sway in the vernal breeze,
Gently ?iodding their golden heads —
Smiled down upon by benignant trees.
At a stir of the wind they pertly dance,
Tossing their heads in saucy glee,
As if to provoke Old Winter, who sighs
And surrenders to Spring reluctantly.
These heralds in suits of emerald green
Raise to the sky their trumpets of gold,
Announcing to all the advent of Spring —
Harbingers winsome, delightful, and
STORM AT THE BEACH
The beach was barren, bleak, and gray,
And I could almost hear it say,
"What do you want this stormy day,
Wand' ring aimlessly that way?"
"Wandering aimlessly? Not I,"
Was my reply.
"I came to see the sea gulls fly
While through their plaintive, piercing cry
I listen to the ocean sigh
And roar and thunder to the shore,
Then rush far back to pick up more
Great force to crash in as before.
I came to feel the North Wind's might
And satisfy my appetite
For thrills that Nature can afford
To set apart from those she's stored."
The Woman Who Wasn't
JUDITH ALLEN walked thoughtfully down the dusty road. As always
when there was composition work to be done for English, she felt low in
spirits. Soon a short story was due, and of all the devious methods of
torture that she could suffer, this was the worst. She kicked a stone out of
her way, and, muttering imprecations on the head of her English teacher,
turned down the drive that led to her home.
She ran up the steps of the porch and flew into the house. Her mother
usually had a suggestion to offer when she needed help, and she certainly
needed it now. When her mother learned of Judith's difficulties, she said,
"Dear, why don't you take Rocket and go hunting?"
Judy's reaction was instantaneous. "Mother! Hunting? I thought
you'd have a good idea."
Mrs. Duane replied with a twinkle in her eyes, "I don't mean hunting
for game, Judy. I mean hunting for a short story."
"What a super idea," Judith thought, as, dressed in white blouse, brown
jodphurs, and darker brown boots, she sprinted across the lawn to the barn
to get Rocket. "Maybe I will find one. Anyway, it's worth a try."
As she rode along, not paying any particular attention to direction,
Rocket took it upon himself to turn down a familiar road which led to a
field behind the old Southwell Farm. When the house had been empty,
Judy had often taken her books over there and studied on the porch. A new
neighbor had moved in now, and perhaps this would be a good time to visit
her. "Who knows," she mused, "I may find a subject for a short story over
Her reverie was interrupted by the sound of voices that seemed to
come from the bushes by the side of the lane. Although they were hardly
more than a murmur, as she rode by she heard the words, "ice," "Mrs.
Benton," and "we'll collect later." Then the voices ceased and the sound of
heavy feet crashing through the brush reached her ears.
"They certainly must want to get that ice to Mrs. Benton in a hurry,"
murmured Judy as she dismounted to pick some deep-purple violets that
were growing beside the road.
When she had finished, she mounted Rocket thinking, "These flowers
are lovely. I think I'll take them to Mrs. Benton."
In a few moments horse and rider swept through the shrubs and over
the stone wall that marked the boundary of the Southwell Farm, into a
large field. The building at the far end of the field, facing the main road,
was a typical country farmhouse, weather-beaten and old, with a huge
barn and red silo and big shade trees on the lawn.
Judy dismounted under one of these trees, wound the reins around the
saddle horn, let Rocket graze. Carrying the flowers in her hand, she
mounted the rickety steps and knocked hesitantly on the door. While she
waited for an answer, she looked around to see what improvements the new
owner had made. She noted with distaste the same broken rocker on the
porch, and the living-room window still shattered. Either the new occupants
were shiftless or intended to stay only a short time.
As she waited for the door to be opened, she felt strangely perplexed —
excited by a feeling difficult to define. "Why, I feel as if the moment that
door opens I'll be face to face with my short story," thought Judy in
The instant the door was opened she was jerked rudely back to reality.
Surely there was no short story here.
The woman who stood grimly in the doorway was a little above
average height, and garbed in a print house dress that almost reached
her ankles. Her whole body from her gray hair to the tops of her old-
fashioned high shoes exuded a strength that seemed almost masculine,
altogether eccentric and forbidding.
"Well?" she demanded sternly. "Don't just stand there. What do
Judy was startled but, as Mrs. Benton stood facing her with a most
unneighborly expression, she answered, "I'm Judy Duane, Mrs. Benton,
and, as I was riding by, I thought I'd stop and give you these flowers I
picked in the lane." She smiled her friendiest smile and held out the
flowers. "Won't you take them? They're to welcome you to Weston."
"Very well," said Mrs. Benton, and without a word of thanks took the
flowers and started to close the door.
"There's something queer going on here," thought Judy to herself. "I
never met anyone so unfriendly. I — don't — quite — know what it is, but
I'm certainly not leaving this place until I learn more."
The door had almost closed when Judy suddenly put her hand to her
head and said, "I'm sorry to bother you, Mrs. Benton, but could I come in
for a minute and sit down? I don't feel very well — the sun's so hot — I'm
dizzy — but I think I'll be all right in a few minutes."
Judy looked so pathetic that Mrs. Benton opened the door and said,
"Come in, then, and 111 get you a glass of water. No, don't take that chair,"
she commanded as Judy started to sit down. "Sit in that one by the fire-
place — it's more comfortable."
Mrs. Benton returned in a few minutes with a glass of water, and, as
Judy drank it, seated herself in a rocker at the opposite side of the fireplace.
Judy almost bolted upright. She couldn't believe her eyes! "Oh, golly," she
thought, "I've got to see her sit down again."
Mrs. Benton smiled in a chilly fashion. "Do you feel any better?"
"Yes, very much better, thank you," answered Judy. "Thanks so much
for letting me come in," she continued quickly as Mrs. Benton started to go
to the door. "Please don't bother. I can find my way out. You just sit down
and don't bother about me."
"Well, all right," replied Mrs. Benton, sitting down again and taking up
"It can't be my imagination," thought Judy wildly. "It's happened
twice. But why — why? It's preposterous! Unbelievable! But I — did —
see — it!"
Her mother was seated before the window sewing as Judy came in
from her ride. They were discussing whether or not to wait dinner for her

father, who managed a jewelry store in town, when the front door opened.
Mr. Duane, his face white, burst into the room calling his wife.
"I'm right here, George," said Mrs. Duane quietly. "What's the matter?"
"Matter?" he shouted. "Do you know what's happened? Well, I'll tell
you. $50,000 worth of diamonds has been stolen from the store, that's all."
"Oh, George!" gasped Mrs. Duane.
"Oh, George, indeed!" yelled her husband. "And those — those nin-
compoops of policemen, they call themselves policemen, don't know who did
it. There have been five robberies within the last two months in the sur-
rounding towns and they haven't a clue!"
"Now, George, I'm sure they're doing the best they can," said Mrs.
Duane soothingly. "You sit down and tell us all about it while I fix you
"Ice," said Judy suddenly and irrelevantly.
"Ice?" queried Mr. Duane, "Of course I want ice in it."
"That isn't what I mean, Dad," laughed Judy. "I meant that diamonds
are sometimes called ice."
Mr. Duane looked at Judy as if he thought that she was suddenly
losing her mind, and then began to talk about the robbery.
Judy barely heard him. She was thinking. She had an idea and, if she
could only connect it with — suddenly it came to her, and she jumped up
shouting. "Eureka! I've got it! I've got it!"
"Got what?" her father inquired impatiently. "Stop that confounded
shouting and tell me what you've got."
"The solution to the diamond robbery!" cried Judy excitedly. "It seems
fantastic, but it's the only possible explanation."
Challenge to the Reader
Do you know who stole the diamonds? Do you know what Judy saw
that gave her a solution to the mystery?
After the excitement of the capture was over, Judy and her mother
discussed the affair.
"You see, mom," she said, "there was one thing about Mrs. Benton that
bothered me. Before a man sits down, he pulls his trousers up, and Mrs.
Benton did it! Not once, but twice!" Her mother looked at her quizzically.
"I knew she was a man. Only I couldn't figure out why she — he — was
disguised as a woman."
Then she told her mother about the conversation she had overheard.
"Once I knew about the robbery it was easy to reason it this way! Those
men were taking ice to Mrs. Benton and collecting for it later. Substituting
diamonds for ice and knowing that Mrs. Benton was a man made it easy."
"But, Judy," queried Mrs. Duane, "where did you find the jewels?"
She didn't keep them in plain sight, did she?"
"No. They were hidden in the back of the wooden rocker she told me
not to sit in."
"You know," she reflected, "this whole affair has given me an idea for
my short story. I — think — I'll call it — The Woman Who Wasn't.

Monday — Dear Diary: The beautiful precision of my alarm clock
arouses in me no feeling of admiration when it shatters my peaceful slum-
ber. Its mad ringing is a constant harbinger of bad news too early in the
morning: a Latin test! a French recitation! an essay to write! no study
period today! Nevertheless, I expeditiously prepared for school, cramming
in those Latin verbs and that last piece of toast simultaneously.
During the course of six periods I flunked the Latin test, broke a
chemistry test-tube, and had another scrap with Bob. On the credit side,
though, my French teacher was pleasantly amazed at my recitation. Maybe
some day I'll play opposite Charles Boyer. After school I went to Press
Club and then stayed for basketball practise. As usual, I was pushed
around like a cart in the First National. In the process I somehow sprained
my finger, and now I can hardly use it. However, that will never excuse
me from writing the essay.
Tuesday — Dear Diary: That infernal essay kept me awake till nearly
midnight, but now it's written and off my already over-burdened mind.
I arrived at school before ten past on this comparatively uneventful
day. I stayed after school for Glee Club and warbled with the rest of the
canaries till 2:15. Oh, I almost forgot — Bob admitted he was wrong, and
we made up.
Wednesday — Dear Diary: I broke my beautiful record this morning
as I made a not-too-graceful entrance at 8: 20. The combination of my locker
always seems to slip my mind when I'm in a hurry. It was surely a lucky
thing that I had gym first period.
Because of my inexcusable tardiness this morning, I was sentenced to
remain in my home room for the sum total of twenty-five minutes after
school! I didn't really mind, though. Bob had to stay, too, and we chatted
about the basketball team which experienced its first victory last night.
This was a red-letter day on my calendar! Bob asked me to the Prom with
him if he gets a job and if he can get the car. Now all I have to do is to
wheedle a new gown from Dad.
Thursday — Dear Diary: I awoke with a start this morning after
dreaming all night of how gloriously I had passed the algebra test sched-
uled for today. I felt as victorious as Eisenhower himself till I remembered
that the day had just begun, and I had yet to take the dreaded examination.
I got excused from English today for an S.A.S. meeting. After six
periods of tedious brain work, there was Glee Club again. Then Sally and I
spent a half hour evaluating the manly beauty of our basketball quintette as
the boys practised for the clash tomorrow night.
Friday — Dear Diary: Friday is the omega of the school week before
an all-too-short weekend. I used up the last cent of my weekly allowance
which is always gone before I realize it. I had to catch up on my ten-cent-
a-week plan so I could attend the basketball game tonight almost free of
charge. I'll probably be compelled to extract those two lucky pennies from
my loafers, but nothing short of a tidal wave could keep me from that game!
With totem-pole patience, I am making ready for and looking forward
to that not-too-distant day when I become a senior.

A tulip smidae rich with goo
Is one of the things that pleases Sue.
Records of Bing and Perry galore
Are stacked up high on her bedroom floor.
At seventeen she knows it all,
Strictly speaking, she's on the ball!
Her looks are exotic and intelligence high;
The boys look twice when Sue passes by.
HARD TO PLEASE
The spiraling breath of the night
Whips the white of the sea
Into a lace-like frosting
For the eternal waters.
The reluctant sands
Wrestle with the begging tides,
While the pastel moonbeams
Transform the flying spray
Into glistening diamonds.
The phantom-like swish
Of the whispering sea
Lures the lonesome shells closer
To reveal a thousand secrets
Entombed beneath its waves.
When I was two I heard them say
In voices low filled with dismay,
"She's such a homely child, poor dear,
And such a bother to be near.
Her hair is straight, it has no curl —
She'd make a better boy than girl.
Her legs are long, she has big feet.
Her bones we see, but where's the meat?
She never talks, but sits and sighs,
And stares and stares through big brown
But now the words they say are such:
"She curls her hair and talks too much.
The meat that as a child she lacked
Is ample now and poorly stacked."
But what care I if they still tease?
It's not my fault they're hard to please!
EVERYBODY'S DOING SOMETHING
Heifitz is playing in Boston,
Sandburg is writing a poem;
There's a steel strike up in Philly,
Two million vets are home.
Tracy has caught up with Scarface,
Superman is still "going strong,"
Churchill is taking life easy,
Crosby still groans out his song.
Me? All I'm doing is sitting;
There isn't a thing to be done!
But please don't say that I'm lazy,
It's hard chewing war-time gum.

From yonder hill there can be seen
A line of silver, a fringe of green;
Through the meadows, bright and free,
The river races toward the sea.
As the stream in the valley glides along,
Against the pebbles it chants a song;
The rippling waves in the sun gleam bright
With darting minnows and sparkling light.
I looked and saw before my eyes
Smisets fade from clear, cold skies;
Song birds chirp in merry tune,
And fireflies gleam in radiant June;
Prayerful trees bow down to God,
And weary farmers plow the sod;
Waters bite the rocky shore,
And flowers grace the forest floor —
All these sights, and more besides,
I gazed upon with open eyes.
Be not content, for all content is pride
In being with yourself well satisfied;
The fish that never wandered from his pool
Was very much disgusted when it dried.
Who knows the wonder of a secret hour
When each doth find within himself a
To take the world, or leave it as he please,
And never more before its idols cower?
Few things are certain in this Vale of
Do not from the unknown Future borrow,
Nor spend your time in fading Yesterday,
Live in Today — there may not be a
Stars are but flowers
In the garden of God;
They bloom nightly
With the light
The snow falls softly to the ground,
With scarcely any stir or sound,
And covers all the earth with white —
A puff to warm her in the night.
It drifts against our garden gate,
And downs the bushes with its weight;
It covers houses, fields, and hills
And swallows up the mountain rills.
Morning comes and earth awakes
To find it's lost in silvery flakes;
And golden sunbeams now unfold
To push away the biting cold.
Warren M. Axford
The rain comes
in silver tears.
It lingers weeping
o'er the slumbering town
amidst the somber gloom of night —
then patters on.
Comes like a raven-haired goddess
Heralded by the blazing sunset,
Shading the world with coal-black tresses.
Crowned with twinkling diamonds,
Reflected by the mirror of the moon,
Upon her shadowy throne
She reigns supreme till sunrise.

DID YOU REALIZE THAT—
In Germany in the sixteenth century the length of standards were
determined as follows: Stand at the door of a church on Sunday and bid
sixteen men to stop, tall ones and short ones, as they happen to pass out
when the service is finished. Then make them put their left feet one behind
the other, and the length obtained is the rod and one sixteenth the foot?
In England Henry I established the yard as the distance from the point
of his nose to the end of his thumb, and Parliament seriously established
standards of length and weight according to grains of wheat and barley.
Shoes are still measured in a system of numeration by 13's. The hand is
used as measure for the height of horses?
We have the fathom (from faetham, the embrace) , the length of two

WHEN the final whistle blew ending the Fairhaven game, ten of
Plymouth's starting eleven realized that they had played their last
football game for Plymouth High School. These ten boys were all
seniors who, together with a large number of juniors and sophomores, had
reported to Coaches Louis Rudolph and Mario Romano early in September
to begin the 1945 grid season.
With nine veterans reporting, hopes ran high for a successful season,
and the squad practised diligently in preparation for the First Annual South
Shore Jamboree which was scheduled for September fifteenth.
JAMBOREE — PLYMOUTH — HANOVER
Before a crowd of eight thousand spectators the leading schools of the
South Shore met in Abington to participate in the Jamboree. Plymouth
drew Hanover as an opponent, and in a game consisting of two seven-
minute periods neither team scored. Both teams had considerable trouble
getting their offense to function, and most of Plymouth's gains were limited
to a few substantial runs by Buddy Roncarati.
PLYMOUTH - ABINGTON 26
In their first home game of the scheduled season, the Blue and White
of Plymouth succumbed to a strong Abington aggregation led by Captain
Dave Roan, who was responsible for three of his team's tallies. The statistics
showed that Plymouth outran Abington, but three fumbles by Plymouth
backs proved costly, and Plymouth threatened only once when, in the
closing seconds of the first half, Kenny Telfer, Plymouth left end, grabbed
a pass on the Abington twenty and raced to the one-yard line. Telfer was
hurt on the play, however, and was sidelined for a month with a dislocated
elbow. The loss of his services was a hard blow to the team.
PLYMOUTH 14 — ROCKLAND 6
The Plymouth boys journeyed to Rockland for their second game of the
season, and through the efforts of a hard-charging line and the superb
running of Buddy Roncarati and Herb Kearsley they scored two touch-
downs in the first half.
Plymouth took the kick-off, and marched on a sustained drive down
the field with Roncarati scoring on an end-sweep. Capitalizing on a Rock-
land fumble, which was recovered by Henry Ferrari, Plymouth guard,
Plymouth again drove down the field with Roncarati spurting off his own
right end and crossing the goal line standing up.
PLYMOUTH 13 — BRIDGEWATER
Once again the injury jinx hit Plymouth. Buddy Roncarati, the hard-
running fullback, received a knee injury during a practice scrimmage and
was lost to the team for the rest of the season.
With Ted Young taking over the fullback position, the Plymouth team
took the field determined to win the game, and, before the first half had
ended, the local boys had scored two touchdowns.
Now the team was really clicking both offensively and defensively.
The line, led by Captain John Banker, kept the Bridgewater backs intact
throughout the afternoon, and the running of Herb Kearsley and Ray
Girard set up the first Plymouth score. Plymouth was again knocking at
Bridgewater's door when Ted Young sliced off his own right end and put
Plymouth in scoring territory. On the next play Herb Kearsley took the
ball on a quick opener, and with fine blocking from his teammates he drove
off-tackle for Plymouth's second score.
PLYMOUTH 6 — MIDDLEBORO 13
It was necessary for Coach Rudolph to revise the Plymouth backfield
for the Middleboro game, for "Pepper" Martin, Plymouth quarterback,
fractured his nose the day before this game, so Ted Young, who had been
playing fullback, moved into the quarterback position. Herb Kearsley,
regular halfback, took over the fullback job, and William Guidetti took
Kearsley's place at halfback.
In the first half of the game it looked as though Plymouth was headed
for the victory column again, but the Orange and Black of Middleboro
displayed an aggressive offensive in the second half and overcame Plym-
outh's six-point lead by scoring two touchdowns. Plymouth's lone tally
was made in the first quarter when Ted Young threw a pass to Ray Girard
in the end zone.
PLYMOUTH 6 — BRAINTREE 7
Before a large, surprised crowd of Braintree fans a small, underdog
Plymouth team led a powerful Braintree team 6-0 for almost three quarters
of the game.
In the second quarter, the Plymouth team took the ball on its own
twenty-yard line, and through a series of quick-opening "T" formation
plays, marched to Braintree's twenty. On the next play the man in motion,
Ray Girard, caught a pass out in the flat and carried the ball all the way for
a touchdown. The try for the vital extra-point was not good.
Braintree's scoring chance came in the third quarter when a Donovan
to Sweezey pass put the team in scoring position. There was an infraction
of the rules by a Braintree player, but, because the head linesman could
not identify the offender, this important penalty was disregarded. Brain-
tree continued on the touchdown march and also made the important point-
after which meant victory.

PLYMOUTH 13 — WHITMAN 6
Playing before a large home following, the Plymouth team scored two
early touchdowns which were sufficient to defeat an ancient rival, the Red
and Black of Whitman.
After taking a Whitman punt, Plymouth marched the length of the
field in five successive plays, and scored on a quarterback buck from the
four-yard line. Only about five minutes had elapsed when the hard-charg-
ing line of the Plymouth team forced a Whitman back to fumble. The ball
was recovered by Captain Banker, and Plymouth was ready to roll again.
On the first play Ted Young took a lateral pass and ran twenty yards for
Plymouth's second score.
Whitman fought back stubbornly in the second half and succeeded in
scoring one touchdown.
PLYMOUTH — BARNSTABLE 20
Plymouth High was completely dominated by a strong, aggressive
Barnstable team in a game played on Cape Cod.
The local boys threatened only once when they penetrated the Barn-
stable defense as far as the twenty-yard line.
Barnstable finished the season with eight wins and two defeats, and
the Plymouth boys admit that the Cape Codders had a fine team this year.
PLYMOUTH 13 - STOUGHTON 6
A large crowd came to Stephens Field on Armistice Day to witness
Plymouth's last home game of the season.
Stoughton took the kick-off and, after being held for three downs, took
to the air and completed a long pass deep into Plymouth territory. The
opposition tried two bucks and then another pass which resulted in a touch-
down. As the half ended, Stoughton was leading 6-0.
Coach Rudolph started most of Plymouth's second team when the game
was resumed, and with fine running by Dave Montanari and William
Guidetti the local boys moved all the way to the Stoughton four-yard line
where Montanari smashed off-tackle to give Plymouth its first score. The
first team then returned to the game, and on the second play after Plym-
outh took possession of the ball Herb Kearsley drove off left tackle,
reversed his field, outraced the Stoughton secondary, and carried the ball
forty-five yards to the Stoughton eight-yard line.
With only a few minutes remaining before the final whistle, Kenny
Telfer caught a pass in the end zone, thus insuring victory for Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH 7 — FAIRHAVEN 19
Plymouth traveled to Fairhaven for the final game of the season, and
in the first half Fairhaven built up a twelve-point lead.
After a rather eventless third quarter, things began to happen. Plym-
outh was in possession of the ball on its own five-yard line. Ray Girard
started out to the left as the man in motion gathered speed as he went, and,
as he reached the ten-yard line, he caught the ball beautifully over his
shoulder and galloped fifty yards before being brought down by the Fair-
haven safety man. This put Plymouth in scoring territory and the local
boys tried desperately to get a touchdown before the game ended. A pass
to Telfer was incomplete, and then another pass exactly like the previous
one was taken by Girard, who raced twenty yards down the sidelines and
crossed the goal line standing up.
On the kick-off that followed, Jim Butters, Plymouth center, was in-
jured and had to leave the game. The Fairhaven boys took possession of
the ball on the fifty-yard line, and in a series of line plunges drove all the
way down to the Plymouth three where they smashed off-tackle for their
third and final score of the game.

ball togs had been
stored away, a call
was issued by Coach "Jeff"

candidates to report for
practice, and under his
watchful eyes the squad
prepared for its first en-
counter with a star-studded
Alumni team. Two boys,

Govoni, a regular last year,
had undergone an appen-
dectomj' and needed an-
other week of rest, and

still nursing a leg injury received during the football season.
Before a large home audience at Memorial Hall, the Plymouth High
quintet was defeated by the Alumni 30 to 20. The entire Alumni team was
composed of World War II veterans, and they proved conclusively that
they had lost none of their pre-war basketball ability. "Tim" Butters and
"Lenny" Bernardo, both former Army men, shared the scoring honors for
the Alumni while Captain "Jimmy" Butters was high scorer for the
For almost the entire month of January, Plymouth came out on the
short end of the scores. Two games were lost to Rockland, one to Barn-
stable, and another to Fairhaven. "Jimmy" Butters sprained his neck in
the Fairhaven game and was side-lined for a week.
Finally, on January 25, the Blue and White defeated Whitman 28 to 25
in a game played in Whitman, and, on the following Tuesday, Plymouth
avenged an earlier defeat by decisively trouncing Fairhaven 41 to 30 in a
game played at the Plymouth High School. Scoring honors were shared by
"Dick" Burgess and "Peaches" McCosh.
Plymouth then suffered three more consecutive defeats, losing to Coyle,
Barnstable, and Abington. These three games were played away from
home, but on February 15th Plymouth returned to Memorial Hall and
trounced Whitman 55 to 27. Plymouth was leading at the half, but in the
third quarter, paced by "Dick" Burgess, who scored twenty-six points,
the local boys increased their lead and coasted to an easy victory.
Next came the upset of the year. A highly-favored Coyle team that had
previously defeated Plymouth by a lopsided 47 to 27 score was edged out
by Plymouth 32 to 30. Plymouth's first five — Butters, Martin, Govoni,
Burgess, and McCosh — played exceptionally well, and mention must also
be given to Norman Clark who in the closing minutes scored three beauti-
fully-executed bucket shots which were instrumental in winning the game.
This was Plymouth's first victory over Coyle since the 1942 season.
The closing game of the season was another thriller which found
Plymouth on the winning end of a 22 to 21 score with Abington. Melvin
Klasky's set-shot in the closing seconds of the game provided the margin
of victory and drew the curtain on another basketball season.
SOUTH SHORE TOURNAMENT
Before a large crowd at the Brockton Y.M.C.A. on Washington's
Birthday, Plymouth was defeated by Middleboro 28 to 25 in a hard-fought
contest. The local boys had a substantial lead at half time, but were unable
to maintain it — and thus Plymouth was eliminated from the tourney.

In the second contest played at Scituate, the Plymouth girls fought
hard, but were forced to taste defeat.
The succeeding games with Hingham and Middleboro on the home
field were ably played, and especially revealed the ability of the first-team
sophomores, Tina Turini and Lillian Sharkey, as fullbacks.
The second contest with Hingham was the second defeat of the season,
but the squad was far from discouraged.
The season ended with a free-for-all with the football team, which
resulted in a tie and several bruises and cuts for the female participants.
The members of the hockey team are grateful to Miss Carolyn Parren
for her instruction and advice throughout the season, to Mrs. Beatrice
Garvin for refereeing many of the games, and to the senior girls who served
as alternate captains this year.

A cold, heavy fog blanketed the village of Beauvais at midnight, the
night was dark and the streets deserted. For this Pierre Vallon was
grateful as he stealthily glided through the dark.
"Why was he depressed?" he asked himself. Why did he have this
strange feeling? What was it? Everything had been perfect and worked
out according to their plans. Was not the great Oise dam destroyed, in
absolute ruin and useless to the Nazis? The same Nazis who had murdered
his wife Germaine and sent his son to a Nazi youth camp. He had avenged
his wife and son and struck a decisive blow in the liberation of a Free
France. Why did he have this strange haunting feeling?
Suddenly he heard them, their footsteps echoing in the deserted cobble-
stone streets. He quickened his pace, he mustn't let them catch him now.
The Gestapo had ways of making a man talk; Pierre was afraid of torture.
Never before had they been so near. All night they had pursued him but
now they were closing in, for the kill! Cold beads of sweat dampened
Pierre's brow. He ran; but they ran also. He knew he must hide. He must
find refuge in some home, anywhere so long as they couldn't find him.
Suddenly they appeared from nowhere, uniforms further down the .street.
He was cornered but in the fog he was still invisible. Crazed with fear
Pierre dashed into the nearest building.
Colonel Von Hienrich was an officer of the German Gestapo, efficient
and cunning and worthy of his nickname, "The Hangman." "At last," he
remarked to his aide, "we have one of them cornered. Now we will uncover
the entire sabotage ring. We'll capture him alive and make him talk. He
is in there somewhere." He gestured with a wave of his hand to a group
of foreboding buildings on the bank of the river. Conducting the search
personally, he entered an old hotel, dilapidated with age and housing many
questionable characters. The saboteur was not there. He left, and with his
men went from house to house with no results.
Near the end of the street there appeared an old building grey and
ghastly, looming up out of its blanket of fog. Across the doorway was a
sign bearing these words, "Beauvais City Morgue." Leaving no hiding place
untouched, Colonel Hienrich beat upon the door and after a brief pause,
a grey-haired old man, very short with stooped shoulders, admitted them.
His eyes were red and flaming. It was evident he had been drinking. He
was a traitor to France, only German sympathizers were given wine and
public positions. Upon seeing Hienrich, he turned rather white, but still
retained a silly stupified gaze. Hienrich demanded to be shown around the
building with such a violent tone, the old man was truly startled and pro-
ceeded to do so with the agility of a man forty years younger. First they
searched the attic with no results, next the offices and still no Vailon.
Descending into the cellar of the morgue, the old man allowed Hienrich to
examine the storage room. Here the bodies were laid out on slabs, covered
by white sheets.
As the atmosphere was cold, damp, and had the stench of dead bodies,
Hienrich investigated hastily and was ascending the stairs when the old
man cried, "Mon Dieu, it moved!" He pointed to a body near-by and
turned white with horror. So startled was Hienrich he lost his balance and
cursing the old man landed in a heap at the foot of the stairs. "You drunken
fool," he cried in rage and grasping the rifle of a nearby soldier, he struck
the keeper a cruel blow on the forehead. Leaving the old man lying in a
pool of his own blood, Hienrich left, thoroughly humiliated at having the
saboteur escape from his very hands and having a drunken old man frighten
him before his men.
As the last soldier left the morgue, the corpse smiled. Pierre felt fine

When you left this country six years ago, you left expecting to be
joined by your older sister, Marie. Perhaps you still lie awake at night,
wondering why she never came; a million little fears crowding your
thoughts. Perhaps you read in the paper where thousands of French people
were sent to Germany to work in the factories. Perhaps you read where
fifty Frenchmen were shot as hostages. Each time did you ask yourself,
"Was Marie among them?" No, Jacques, your sister was not one of these.
I often ask myself, "Wouldn't it have been better if she had?"

Nunc ut Turn
Horribile bellum perfectum est; iamque incipiebat lenta et anxia
exspectatio reditus amatorum qui pugnaverunt et qui vulnerati sunt.
Domi sunt coniuges, precantes ut sui mariti salvi sint atque celeriter
redeant. Coniuges cum pectoribus gravibus exspectant, mirantes et
incertae sui mariti domum veniant necne.
Haud aliter olim exspectabat patiens Penelope-Penelope qui annos
lentos decern reditum coniugis Ulixi Ithacum ab bello Trojano exspect-
abat. Frustra amatores multi earn in matrimmonium ducere conati sunt.
Semper suum responsum retinebat dum uno die Telemachus et Penelope
lacrimas laetitiae fundentes, Ulixum domum redire viderunt.
Ut cum canis fidus Ulixi, qui mortuus est cum suum magistrum
redeuntem vidit, una cum Penelope exspectabat, haud aliter hodie canes
fideles et multi reditum dominorum pugnantium suorum exspectant.
Latina Vivit Hodie
The romantic language of ancient Rome is still alive today. Here in
our own town we have examples of the Latin language. For instance, on
the Training Green monument we find:
"Memoria in Eterna"
These words express more beautifully than our own language the love
and respect we have for those who went before us.
